Revelation 21:3-4

. . ., and God himself will be be with them;  he will wipe away every tear
from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning
nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away.

I found these images in The National Archives when I was doing research for another web site.  I remember how moved I was by the pain and sorrow that is evident in the eyes of the refugee children; to be so young and to have such sad eyes.  I wanted this collage to convey the message that through The Cross, someday all pain and suffering will be over - as it is written in Revelation 21:4.
